My jewelry started with buttons when I was 11. My father encouraged me by getting me the large coat buttons that were hard to find. Then I started with things I found on the street or mechanical items. Anything outside the "box". I was steampunk before it was born! As the years went on, my jewelry got more sophisticated. I experimented with sea glass, wiring and soldering, and used quirky themes from French to Bali to African. My items and themes eventually rolled over into my artwork. Every piece has a story...
I am originally from Woodstock, NY, and lived in Georgia prior to settling in Virginia. Creating and selling now for over 40 years. I have had shops, rental spaces, antique malls, yard sales, flea markets, etc.
My jewelry has been featured three times in the Jewelry Affaire magazine.
